In January 2011, the Saifi Institute for Arabic Language introduced â€œLetâ€™s talk dirty with Marc,â€ the first Arabic class to teach foreigners Lebanese curse words within a cultural context.
â€œOne of my students came to class one day after cursing an old man, who had called her a bad name. She immediately responded with the typical, â€˜your mother,â€™ and he was apparently dumbfounded. She was very proud of herself,â€ explained Ghazar.
We better watch out when cursing foreigners in Arabic from now on. [Link]
